Texans, Broncos Favored on Saturday NFL Betting Odds

Bet on NFL Saturday Night Football Odds at Bovada Sportsbook

The NFL returns to Saturday in Week 15 with two games, starting with the AFC South-leading Houston Texans visiting the New York Jets as 7-point favorites on the NFL betting odds.

Houston travels to New York looking to rebound from a 24-21 loss to Indianapolis, and can clinch the AFC South divisional crown and a playoff berth with a win in Saturday afternoon’s game at MetLife Stadium.

The Texans have been dominant since opening the season on a three-game straight-up losing streak, marching to nine straight victories before last weekend’s stunning loss to the Colts as 4-point home chalk.

Despite their recent strong play, the Texans have made little progress on the Super Bowl odds since opening the campaign at +2200. The team currently sits at +1900 on those futures, well back of the New Orleans Saints, who continue to lead the way as +300 favorites.

However, the Texans have emerged as a reliable wager in NFL football betting during their recent hot streak, and have covered in five of their past seven outings including outright wins in Jacksonville and Denver as betting underdogs.

The Jets return home after ending a six-game SU slide with a 27-23 win in Buffalo last weekend as 4.5-point underdogs. That marked New York’s second straight win against the spread, but the Jets have been a major disappointment on home turf, falling to SU and ATS defeat in three straight, losing by an average margin of 21.66 points per game.

New York has also dropped two straight to the Texans, including a 23-17 loss as 9.5-point underdogs on the NFL odds in Houston’s last visit in 2012, but has covered in five of seven meetings since 2003.

 

Browns Field-Goal Underdogs at Denver on NFL Odds

Week 15 NFL betting action continues on Saturday night as the Broncos host the Cleveland Browns as 3-point favorites.

The Broncos will be in desperation mode after seeing their slim playoff hopes take a major hit with last week’s 20-14 loss in San Francisco as 3-point favorites. With the loss to the 49ers, the team fell to 6-7 on the season and is now pegged as a +1000 longshot to end a two-year playoff drought.

While Denver has posted SU and ATS wins in each of its three previous contests, the team has struggled to collect wins at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, going 1-3 SU in its past four while averaging just 21 points per game.

Despite their uneven performances on the gridiron, the Broncos have emerged as a steady bet on the NFL odds since failing to post an ATS win in their first four outings. Denver has gone 6-2 SU over its past eight contests, including a 2-2 ATS record as a betting favorite.

The Browns travel to the Rockies riding high after devastating Carolina’s playoff chances with a 26-20 win over the Panthers as 1-point home underdogs. Cleveland has now posted outright wins in three of its past four, but has continued to struggle on the road, going 1-5 SU this season to extend their record of road futility to 2-26 SU over the team’s past 28 games.

The Browns also have work to do to end a four-game SU slide in Denver, during which they have averaged just 12 points per game.
